Ryan Cassidy is your average nice guy, facing the prospect of inheriting millions, if he only lives in Albertsville for a whole year. Piece of cake, right? That's what he thinks, but then he meets the townspeople.

What I really loved about this book is the terrifying atmosphere and the tension, that grab you from the moment Ryan hits the town, and just keep on pushing you into a corner until the very last page. I'm also a sucker for good villains, and the "monster" of Albertsville completely exceeded my expectations. So did many of the other characters. It's amazing what some people will do out of fear, how far they're willing to go to keep a dangerous secret, and how easy it is for a charismatic psychopath to keep an entire town under his boot. Ryan practically stands no chance to survive long enough to get his inheritance, and maybe uncover some of the atrocities committed in this town, and it's not clear until the very last pages what his fate is. There's not a single moment of pause in his ordeal.

Also there's sex, violence, blackmail, fear and intimidation, and the language is not for the faint of heart. But what kind of a thriller would it be, if it didn't tackle you right in your comfort zone? You will sink your nails and teeth into this book. Definitely worth it!
